This week we celebrate two versions of My Funny Valentine by Chet Baker. The first, his classic studio recording which in my opinion was one of the best versions of My Funny Valentine ever recorded. The second shows footage of Chet Baker performing live in Torino, Italy (1957) with his smooth and melodic interpretation of My Funny Valentine.
Truly one of our jazz greats he takes us through a deep journey with hundreds of recordings and a handful of vocals over the years. A great movie – Let’s Get Lost 1988 is a documentary by Bruce Weber on Chet Baker’s life journey and tells his story through all the good and bad. In listening through Chet’s videos and recordings, his haunting version of My Funny Valentine stands in a class of its own. One of the most beautiful versions of this song ever recorded.
